If this sounds like you, then sign up for the ICC Outreach Program!
The ICC Outreach program pairs International students with students from Japan to help foster intercultural understanding in the local community. Each pair creates a lesson about the international student’s culture then presents it at a local Japanese school.
At the orientation ICC will explain details of the program and provide sample materials. Afterward, you and your partner will work together to prepare, practice and then present the lesson.
